Holiday Gift Idea 8

I am now focused on finding a gift that Lindsie can give to Josh for Christmas.  After thinking long and hard over this one, I have come to the conclusion:


Josh needs a funny hat!  It would serve two purposes:

  1. Cover his bald, cold head in that brisk northern climate
  2. Help him keep his ego in check.

I would suggest that you could get each other silly hats, and then the rule is, if you are going to get into an argument, you have to wear the silly hats, so as to not be taken too seriously.

This idea brought to you in part by the letter “L”

I am very proud of myself.  I have gotten this far without recommending any electronics…

However, I must note that electronic devices are the #1 gift at Christmas time.  (If you don’t believe me, just look at battery sales on the day after Christmas)

Here is a great all-purpose electronic device that is not too nerdy, but is very cool, and which everyone can never have enough of:


A digital picture frame!

Everyone should have one, relatively few people have them, and they are now quite inexpensive.  Even if someone does have one, they can always use another for a different room.

Go forth and conquer.

Men… it’s the old standby.


Bling. Yes. Jewelry. No woman’s life is complete with out it (for some strange reason).

Also, I have observed that size and shimmer currently outweighs actual authenticity.

But gawdy jewelry is also distasteful in the wrong setting. Remember that jewelry should be simple and tasteful, classic and ever lasting.

…And also disposable. How many people have put the ring in the drain and had to pull out the clumps of hair from the trap until they found it? Ewww…

Finally  (it’s about time) a serious gift idea:


If you’re not sure what to get someone, but you don’t want to resort to a gift certificate to Target (bleah), may I suggest giving the gift of travel? Giving someone a gift certificate or voucher for their perferred airline or hotel will encourage them to take that little trip they’ve always wanted this year, but could never quite justify.  (“Now I have a voucher, so I have to use it…”)

Go team!

Holiday Gift Idea 3

There were many memorable television shows from the 70’s and 80’s, but one thing that made them so memorable was the incredibly catchy theme songs that would play during the opening credits. These have been supplanted by the more ethereal theme songs of the 90’s and 00’s. (Can anyone tell me what the theme to Grey’s Anatomy is? Didn’t think so)

So… for a limited time this CD might be available:


Come and knock on my door anytime baby!!!!

Today’s holiday gift is a lovely addition to any family:


Snakes and reptiles make great pets, and children love to receive pets for Christmas.  There’s no greater excitement than going through your presents and hearing a *bark* *bark* or a *hiss* *hiss*.

In fact, if you’re lucky, the snake might be so provoked from your child jiggling the package that the moment the package is opened, the snake will already be coiled and ready to strike!


Holiday Gift Idea 1

I have decided that as part this great Christmas season, each day I will be featuring a holiday gift idea. Some might be serious, some not.

Today’s gift is something old that has now been made new again:

Chia Pet

Chia Pets… I’ve never seen one actually in real life. Do people really buy these things? Is this a constant gift/regift thing? Do they even work?

Please, if I have any chia pet readers, enlighten me as to what these things are…
